An Insider's view of SmartSense by Digi

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in the office is definitely energetic. People are always working in the functional work spaces rather than at their desks or can be found taking a break and participating in our office foosball league. People are excited about the work we're doing and the people we get to work with.

What projects are you most excited about?

One of the largest projects SmartSense has been looking forward to is the new gateway which will be able to work with our entire sensor line. This will mean a much easier use case for all involved. It will also mean to the customer a far less complicated setup. This will help us to streamline our product offering, in which we are excited.
